Everyone in this world is aware of the importance of bonding. When it comes to having a healthy and happy relationship with your child, it is good to have the right gears and know the right guidelines. Read on to know the ways to develop healthy relationship with kids.
Every parent wants to be great and raise happy, healthy and well behaved kids. The amazing part is that all these depend on how strong your bonding with your child is. In fact, having a healthy relationship with your child leads to ultimate success in parenting.
Having positive relationship with your child is also important for her emotional and social growth. You can initiate this by giving lots of opportunities to your child, letting him or her know you love and care for him or her and by treating him or her with respect.
This might sound unreasonable to some parents because it is a word normally used for elders. For most, it is actually difficult to define respect. Well, here we mean to treat your children with consideration, care and admiration. Treat your kids with dignity and have regards for their feelings as well.
2. Involve Them in as Many Things as Possible
Children feel good when they are asked for help or involved in projects that you are working in. Even if you think that your work might get little bit slow, find a reasonable task for your child considering his or her age and talent and let him or her work on that. This will help build trust between the two of you and boost his or her self-confidence.
3. Open-Up Opportunities for Your Child
It is true that you cannot allow your child to do everything he or she wants to do, but limiting him or her just because you do not want him or her to do something is not right. If you say, “no” for something, you should have concrete reason for that.
4. Be Your Child’s Support
Show your child that you would support him or her in any situation. Even if he or she would be wrong, you will support him or her to make things better.
5. Keep Consequences Age-Appropriate
Since your child is growing, he or she will make mistakes or misbehave at times. Make sure you do not isolate him or her or punish her for long, use age appropriate consequences and never drag it long.
6. Spend One-to-One Time with Each Child
When you will spend alone time with your child, he or she will be able to share his or her feelings and how he or she is doing with you in a better way. He or she will feel confident about your support and the bond between you two.
7. Be Genuine
This is the most important thing that matters in making your relationship with your child strong. Show your genuine love and care because children reciprocate parents’ behaviour. Be authentic in your interactions with your child.
When you are working on making your relationship with your child strong, keep in mind that it may take some time especially if your child is not very young. Make it a point that when you reunite with your kids physically, which means after you return home from the entire day of work or when the kids get back from school, you should reunite with them emotionally as well.
Do not fake your presence because your child will sense your emotional availability. Also, being authentic and honest will inspire your child to believe in himself or herself, value himself or herself and be responsible for his or her own self. Parenting brings joy and challenges. Be strong, resilient and love your kids.
